5 Worship Slide Design Ideas – October 2018

A couple of weeks ago, I shared with SALT Conference about great worship slide design. I thought I’d share some of those designs (along with a bonus design that I just designed) for your inspiration. It’s important you realize that not all of these make sense for every context. Some of these are a bit crazy. They work in my church. But take this as a chance to shake up what you feel is possible for your worship slides.

Song: Let Go by Hillsong Young & Free
Font: Helvetica Neue Ltd Std
Motion Backs: Nebula Pack from Visual Media Church

To accomplish this, I actually downloaded the triple wide version (SD) of these videos and the 720p version. I set the background layer to the 720p, then added the triple wide version in the actual slides and layered them behind the text. I rotated some 180 degrees so they would look like different videos. And this was the result!

Song: Real Love by Hillsong Young & Free
Font: Heading Pro Light Italic
Motion Backs: Palms Remix Pack from Visual Media Church

For this one, I added a thine white line separating the two lines of text and turned that into a template. I simply deleted the white line for blank slides.

Song: Who You Say I Am by Hillsong Worship
Font: Bebas Neue
Motion Backs: Desert Pack from Visual Media Church

The colors of these motion backgrounds let me use both white and black. To add some interest, I just added a simple black box behind whichever sets of words I wanted to highlight on each slide.

Song: Your Love Awakens Me by Phil Wickham
Font: Helvetica Neue Ltd Std
Motion Backs: Warp by Visual Media Church

I used this bold font and created short lines. For the chorus, I allowed “Your love” to hang out on in its own text box since both lines of the chorus started with the same words.

Song: Holy Ground by Passion
Font: Black Diamond
Motion Backs: Burst by Visual Media Church

Normally I wouldn’t recommend such a scripty font for lyrics. But since this song progresses so slowly and has such few words, it makes them easy enough to read. I love the way the font matches the powder-burst background.

What do you think? Are these designs too crazy? Could you see yourself using them at your church? Give some feedback below!
